Last week, Laurie Golson packaged 289 boxes Holiday Cheese Assortment. Find her gross weekly earnings if she is paid at the following differential piece rate.

Boxes packaged Pay per package

per week

1-100 $1.88

101-300 $2.08

301 and over $2.18

I don't know what I did wrong, but my answer came out different than what it was supposed to be.

1.88 * 100 = 188.00

2.08 * 189 = 393.12

393.12 + 188.00 = ?

Okay, I see what I did wrong, I was thinking one thing and looking at something else. I got $581.12 which is what it was supposed to be.
